Ranger

Age: 1 1/2 years
Gender: male
Breed: corgi mix
Does well with: children, CATS & dogs
Special Needs: N/A
Adoption Fee: $100 + tax

 

 

This pointy-eared fellow is Ranger. He’s about 45 lbs now and plays well with his foster brothers and sisters. He has some resource guarding issues that are being worked on with his foster. He was surrendered after nipping at someone’s foot while they were messing with him as he chewed a bone. He didn’t even break skin but scared them and they wanted him gone after. He knows a lot of basic commands, is doing well on potty training, and is kennel trained. He is very protective over his food, treats, and toys which is also being worked on. He is neutered and up to date on shots.

Rain

Age: 4 Months
Gender: Female
Breed: Unknown/HeEler/Hound Mix
Does well with: children, cats & dogs
Special Needs: N/A
Adoption Fee: $175 + tax

 

 

Rain was one of our parvo puppies but she is now healthy and doing well. These puppies all have their rabies and first distemper shots. We are unsure on the breed but expect them to be medium/large size dogs with possibly heeler/hound due to coloring and howl. They are all very sweet and love to play. We are currently working on potty and kennel training but as they are still so young, it will be something the adopters will need to work on. The adoption fee is $175 + tax but we will refund $75 with proof of spay.

Pascal

Age: 1 1/2 years

Special Needs: N/A
Adoption Fee: $100 + tax

 

 

Meet Pascal - We think he is about a year and a half old border collie who despite having a rocky past, is as sweet and happy as can be. Pascal has lots of energy and would do best with an active family or a big yard to run and play in. He does great with other dogs, loves his kennel, knows basic commands, and is smart and ready to learn more. He has a great personality that is sure to win you over once you meet him. Pascal will be ready for adoption in July!

Founded in September of 2017, the purpose of Tails of the Midwest Rescue is to take in unwanted, abandoned, abused, or stray pets and attempt to find suitable forever-homes for them. This will prevent possible neglect and/or euthanasia. This rescue is created and run by local volunteers in the Bismarck-Mandan community. We are a 501(c)3 non-profit organization, and fully foster-based.

Marissa Rath

Hello! My name is Marissa Rath. I’m a single-parent raising a 6-year old son and we have two dogs. Amelia is a four-year old American Staffordshire/Australian Cattle Dog. I had fostered her and her ten puppies for another rescue and once all the puppies found forever homes, I kept her. I also have a German Shepherd Mix named Aspen who is a year old that I adopted from our own rescue. I’ve been part of the rescue community for about six years. I work full-time for an insurance company as a claims benefit specialist and part-time cutting hair. I’ve been a licensed cosmetologist for eleven years. In my spare time, I love to cook and have been a vegetarian for fifteen years. I live for my daily coffee and you can find me most happy with my nose buried in a book. I am a certified holistic health coach and also am certified in crystal healing, aromatherapy, and holistic tarot.

Melissa Carson

Hello! I am Melissa Carson. I’m married with a 4-year old son and two dogs. Goose is a Golden Retriever and Rooster is an English Mastiff. I work full-time at an engineering firm and in my spare time I spend time with my family and dogs, playing volleyball, and shooting. My family loves to camp in the summer and we have a large backyard to spend time in with friends. I started fostering for another rescue a few years ago and got to see a senior dog find his forever family. After that, I was hooked on the feeling of pure joy of seeing the connection between dog and human come alive.

Tiffany Christensen

Hello! My name is Tiffany Christensen. I have been involved in animal rescue and dog training for over 15-years. After witnessing firsthand the hundreds of adoptable dogs being euthanized for behavioral problems that could be easily corrected, I began working with rescues to help rehabilitate and train their harder-to-adopt dogs to overcome their problems and become more likely to be adopted. I am an advocate for the No-Kill Initiative and firmly believe that all dogs deserve a chance at life. I moved to North Dakota in 2010 and fell in love with the area. In 2016, I opened Kanine Kingdom which offers doggy daycare, kennel-free boarding, and scientific based dog training to the Williston area. I currently live in Willison, ND with 9-dogs that I affectionately call my ‘kids’. Hunter is a 12-year old Labrador. Gunner is a 6-year old Mastiff/Lab mix. Rhaurie is a 6-year old Irish Wolfhound. Freddie is a 3-year old Irish Wolfhound/Lab mix. Cooper is a 12-year of Bichon. Lucy is a 3-year old Pomeranian/Dachshund mix. Ethel is an 8-year old Chihuahua. Ayana is a 6-year old Irish Wolfhound and Katie is a 1-year old Pitbull mix.

Cassandra Sattler

I have been an animal lover since I was a kid and brought home as many animals as my parents would let me (and some they wouldn’t let me.) In 2017 I bought a house and was able to start fostering. I’m also a student, a soldier and work as a home health aide but when people ask me for an introduction, the first thing I tell them is that I foster dogs! I have a nine year old black mutt named Alix who has shared all of life’s adventures with me since 2010 and a one year old black lab named Loki who I “foster failed” in Feb of 2019. I enjoy traveling, kayaking, camping, hiking, riding motorcycle and making things/art.
